Sky Climb, MacGregor (Sky Zone)

by Southside Fun Mum (follow)
Thanks to the introduction of Ninja Warriors, my daughters (Miss Six and Miss Eight) have taken a real liking to obstacle course activities, including climbing monkey bars, climbing walls (yes, they now spider-climb my hallway walls thanks to the show!) and using the kitchen stools lined up as the "Quintuple Steps".

And in case you are wondering, I don't allow this.
Usually I catch them doing it then promptly stop it. So, when my friend told me about the Sky Climb section of SkyZone, I had to check it out.

As you enter the Sky Climb zone, the first thing you notice is the variety of climbing walls. Aside from your typical, you also have a 'Jack and the Beanstalk' climb, and one that resembles a punching bag. For an extra challenge, one of the many people working there may shake the punching bag to 'check' that you are holding on tightly. Don't worry, everyone must wear a harness as safety must come first.

Each climbing wall has a little plaque at the base that tells you how difficult it is using five different criteria (fear being one of them).

Sky Climb sessions start with a harness fitting and a 15 minute rundown of all the safety rules, and everyone must have their harnesses checked prior to entry.

Harnesses are a must at Sky Climb

As you enter the area, another thing that surprises you is the soft floor. We were told that the floor has 33cm of foam to lessen impact in case of a fall. It's not soft like a trampoline but still enough that you notice it straight away.

You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.

My girls were challenged for the whole hour session (in a good way!) I only wish that I had tried it with them as it looked like so much fun. Oh well, lucky for my girls there will most definitely be a next time as I can't let them have all the fun.

Fun and challenging obstacles at every turn!

A couple of things you need to know; climbers must be at least 110cm or 5 years of age. (There is no upper age limit, so Mums, why not show your kids that you can do it too!) I would highly recommend booking online prior to your visit as it can get really busy and you may run the risk of and being turned away.
